Yesterday, Today

Yesterday was better. Not great but good, it was doable. I functioned without prescription pain meds, only Tyneol. The pain, burning in the eye was better but worse at times today. Yesterday my mom came and did some laundry, some odds and ends and we spent a great few hours together, just us. It was much needed! I slept, two, two hour naps to be exact. Our pastors' wife and daughter came and brought an elaborate meal, delicious it was!

Today my friend, Monica bought my groceries, my parents are taking and picking up the boys as we have been blessed that John has gotten to work all week (and tomorrow too)! I am getting there. I just cat napped today and tonight managed the boys by myself for a couple of hours without incident. My Mom bathed them and helped with supper (she and my Daddy ate with us).

There is still lots of drainage and clots. I still am vomiting some from the drainage and have lost 12 pounds since last Tuesday. I need to lose more but this is a bad way to lose it.

I go back to the doctor Friday.

We are blessed and the wind is slowing building back up in my sails. Thank you for your prayers!

Hugs and Blessings!

It's nice to have good friends and family to help out when you need it, isn't it? You do so much for others, that I'm glad you have the opportunity to let them help you.

I'm also glad that you're feeling better and that John has been working all week. Yea!

I'm so glad you're getting better, Marva, and glad that you are blessed with such good help! It makes me worry less about you :) I was wondering if you were having hurricane problems, too, praying that you were all safe and sound. Still praying for strength, healing, and provision for you all.

Great news that your husband has some temporary (?) work. I'm sure every little bit helps.

Still praying. Hang in there!

It sounds like you are really improving!
Take it easy and take more catnaps.
